TCI Precision Metals Installs Additional Waterjet Machining Center

TCI Precision Metals has added an additional OMAX waterjet machine to support increased demand for precision Machine-Ready Blanks made of stainless steel, aluminum and other alloys. The OMAX waterjet is capable of cutting materials that are up to 8" thick on 15' x 7'5" table.

TCI Precision Metals has announced the installation of its second OMAX 80X waterjet machining center. The new machine is the second waterjet added in the last year to keep up with growing demand for precision Machine-Ready Blanks and other specialty parts.

"Our recent investments in both sawing and waterjet cutting equipment have paid off big for our customers by helping us shorten lead time and improve on time delivery," said Ben Belzer, President of TCI Precision Metals. "Most of our Machine-Ready Blanks orders are for either aluminum or stainless steel alloys. For our aluminum customers, we previously installed a new Schelling fm8 plate saw, capable of cutting aluminum and other nonferrous metals up to 6 in. in thickness at speeds up to 100 FPM. We then added our initial OMAX waterjet machine, and now our second one, capable of cutting stainless steel alloys and other ferrous materials that are up to 8 in. thick on 15 ft. x 7 ft. 5 in. table. This allows us to maintain complete control over managing our customers' expectations when it comes to special needs and on-time delivery."

With its Tilt-A-Jet cutting head technology, the model 80X produces high precision, finished edge cuts that are square, with no edge tapper.
